Teen Art Group

TAG - Teen Art Group, is an exciting art program for youth aged 15-18, taking place one evening (every second week) during the school year, from October 2013 to May 2014. The program alternates between Emily Carr University of Art + Design and the Vancouver Art Gallery, where students are introduced to art-making practices in the studio and visual culture in the Gallery. Students work with a variety of artists and innovators and have the opportunity to explore public exhibitions at the Vancouver Art Gallery.

TAG is a great opportunity for teens who are interested in art and design and who want to explore and expand their creative practice while attending high school. All interested teens are encouraged to attend the TAG Launch to get more information and an application form.
